Women in Reggae

Today’s musical edition is about women in reggae. It is a glimpse into a moment in history, from 70ies and up, in which we celebrated the outstanding female voices of reggae music. Jamaica is, and probably will always be, a patriarchal society, but at this point in time the rise of women within the genre had become a notable, positive development.
Probably the best-known among Jamaica’s female singers is the trio called the I Three, who sang harmony vocals for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1974 until Marley’s death in 1981. Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley all had successful professional solo careers before joining up with the Wailers.
Apart from those three well known women , we feature many more from Susan Carol, Annette Brissett, Hortense Ellis…., and many more.
